New Adventures

Greetings all,

Hope your summer was relaxing (even a bit adventurous) and your fall not too much of a reminder winter approaches, especially if you live in Laramie, Wyoming — we had a significant snowfall this past Sunday. All remains interesting here and thus far I’m still able to maintain the joy of changing seasons and the aliveness of new adventures. Thanks to our friend Jeasik I was introduced to Pickleball a few months ago and actually enjoy it – resisted the sport for a few years due to its association with “old people”. Pickleball is great fun — much more challenging than it seems — and a great way to stay physically active; Susan remains unconvinced. Also, for the first time I backpacked into the Wind River Range near Pinedale, Wyoming. Though it took a bit of adjustment to once again carry a 50-pound backpack, prepare a new camp each day, and appreciate the changeability of weather in late August (one evening experiencing a torrential storm around supper time), the adventure was delightful — sparkling with newness. I’m also in the midst of coordinating my first small-group safari to Tanzania scheduled for next summer (so far so good, have our first group of six travelers); each visit to East Africa is full of wonder and surprise. We still have a few places available for the safari so think about it. Attached is the safari itinerary, a winter-photo from this past Sunday, a Pickleball group photo, and some photos from my backpacking trip into the Winds. Happy Halloween!    Revised Itinerary TZ’19 Description(july’18)
